Winnipeg Jets Playoff Practice Report

With their next round still not set the Jets hit the ice for practice in Winnipeg.

It will be another day of not knowing their next opponent for the Jets as last night’s Leafs and Habs game was won by Montreal in overtime sending that series to a sixth game to be played tomorrow night.  Which means more practice and recovery time for Winnipeg who got their first round series with the Oilers wrapped up in four games (although with all the OTs it was like playing a fifth game).

So instead the team will hit the ice for practice in Winnipeg.
